by government through fiscal policy was the real blow-up risk. so if you think of a couple places in the world that we were the most afraid of like europe, i think the actions of the ecb to at least defer the problems with the sovereigns and the bank issues in europe, if they use this time to fix the problems, we'll look back and think it's a good thing. if they deferred them, made them worse in the long term, we won't feel that way. i think something similar has happened in the united states whereby a lot of liquidity has been provided by the central bank. >> andrew, you have operations throughout all of the world. what's your sense of growth? there are troubling reports about growth slowing down which so far have been a very powerful lifeline for global growth as united states and europe weakened, particularly china where you do a lot of business. >> i don't think we're going have an '08/'09 scenario out there for the reasons lloyd was addressed. i do think the world since '08/'09 to now has not gotten to normal. of course, the obvious, which is consumption in the u.s., is not where it was.
does it, his goal is to reduce government spending to 20% of gdp. gdp is the biggest measure of everything we produce in society. he wants to do that by the end 6 his first term. right now government spending is at 25% of gdp. let's shed some more light on what romney's america would look like. kevin hassette is an economic adviser for mitt romney. stevon moore is an editorial writer for "the wall street journal." my good friend christine romans is the host of "your botto line" right here on cnn. folks, no party or ideological spin today, no using the name obama or the term democrat. pain the me a picture of what the world looks like under romney four years from now using specifics. you can't say things like it will be better, we'll be safer, everyone will be richer. tell me exactly what happens, the good and the bad. kevin you're responsible for writing some of the policy. i don't go first. >> yes, thanks, ali. i have to say i agree with your setup exactly. i commend your show for really being one of the only places that's talking about the storm in europe. the fact is the w
's like asking the government how often do you beat your wife. >> i should have had a question mark at the back of it. let's face it, okay? but the facts are, no matter how you want to look at this, we had 25 economists polled before this number came out. the average number they expected was about 115,000. >> yes. >> not one of them had a number below 8.1. there were 8.1, they were republicans and they were democrats and all of a sudden -- >> i agree with you. >> do you agree with that? >> i agree with everything you're saying, jack. your question was -- >> then you wake up in the morning and it's 7.8 with a bunch of assumptions. >> there are two great facts you make. as the best ceo america has ever had, there are two very powerful things you can say here. one is let's take a look at how the bls, bureau of labor statistics and department of labor measures unemployment, number one, and b, maybe you think barack obama's not doing a good job and mitt romney should be replacing him. but to honestly suggest that there's corruption, that the obama campaign may have had something to do wi
of the numbers. we had 600,000 government jobs added in the last two months. we had 873,000 jobs by a household survey, which is a total estimate, from 50,000 phone calls. of those 600,000 were temporary workers. chris, these numbers are all a series of assumptions. tons of assumptions. and it just seems somewhat coincidental that the month before the election the numbers go 0.1% below when they were when the president started, although, i don't see anything in the economy that says these surges are true. the 873,000 jobs in the household survey is the strongest economy since 1983. i don't think you can find an economist. there were 25 of them this morning that predicted 8.1 to 8.2 but they did forget 114,000 jobs. we got 114,000 jobs and somehow, the assumptions ended up at 7.8. >> let me just get back to your tweet this morning. it must be embarrassing for you to do a tweet after the power you used to have. tweeting doesn't seem like something i'd hear from jack welch. and i mean it. unbelievable job numbers, fair enough. these chicago guys will do anything to change the numbers. what evidenc

, medicare is the government health insurance program mostly for people over the age of 65. about 50 million americans rely on this program and this financial future over the long term doesn't look so good. the scary part is, though, that both campaigns say the other side's plans for dealing with that are just awful. >> obama care takes $716 billion from medicare to spend on obama care. all you seniors out there, have you been denied choices? they haven't put a credible solution on the table. their ideas are old and their ideas are bad and they eliminate the guarantee of medicare. this is their essential claim that my opponent will destroy medicare, but is that really true? let's take a look at some of the facts and i'll bring in tools and look at the white house plan to begin with. this is the landscape they're dealing with. the cost of medicare will generally increase over the next ten years until it reaches about $1 trillion annually. they want to reduce that by about 10%. that's the orange part here. that's the part they're cutting out. now, their opponents look at that and say that's re

borrowing, higher taxes, a government takeover of health care. it's not working. it's failed to create the jobs we need. 23 million americans are struggling for work today. 15% of americans are in poverty. this is not what a real recovery looks like. you deserve better. mitt romney and i want to earn your support. we're offering real reforms for a real recovery for every american. mitt romney, his experience, his ideas, his solutions is uniquely qualified to get this job done. at a time when we have a jobs crisis in america, wouldn't it be nice to have a job creator in the white house? the choice is clear. a stagnant economy that promotes more government dependency, or a dynamic growing economy that promotes opportunity and jobs? mitt romney and i will not duck the tough issues. and we will not blame others for the next four years. we will take responsibility and we will not try to replace our founding principles. we will reapply our founding princip principles. the choice is clear. and the choice rests with you. and we ask you for your vote. thank you. >> and thank you, both, again. t

to create 7 million jobs. we think that government taking 28% of a family and business's income is enough. president obama thinks that the government ought to be able to take as much as 44.8% of a small business's income. look, if you taxed every person in a successful small business making over $250,000 at 100%, it would only run the government for 98 days. if everybody who paid taxes last year doubled their taxes this year, we would still have a $300 billion deficit. you see, there aren't enough rich people and small businesses to tax to pay for all their spending. and so the next time you hear them say, don't worry about it, we'll get a few wealthy people to pay their fair share, watch out, middle class, the tax bill is coming to you. that's why we're saying we need punishment tax reform. let's look at it this way. 8 out of 10 businesses, they file their taxes as individuals, not corporations. where i come from overseas, which is lake superior, the canadians, they drop their tax rates to 15%. the average tax rate on businesses in the industrialized world is 25% and the president wants

long career with the u.s. government making officials believe at perhaps he was singled out and targeted. want to talk about paula about this, and what do we know about the victim and who do we think is responsible? >> this is one of the stories we're covering on cnn international and following -- you mentioned this was a senior official at the u.s. embassy, a yemeni national that had worked there for almost two decades. his name hasem. the attackers, as you mentioned, driving up to the car on motorcycles, and this does, as far as sources at cnn have spoken to, sort of bear the hallmarks of an al qaeda-style attack where they targeted -- they knew the route that this man took to work. he was off duty, according to a state department official who spoke with skr nn. now, you'll remember, of course, the source in yemen was a target of attacks and protests against that anti-islam film. some protesters that day breached the perimeter, burned the u.s. flag, and some sources are saying that mr. aklan was investigate this particular attack. others have not been able to confirm that

the federal government would propel newly competitive and viable automakers rather than seal their fate with a bailout check. and the obama administration ultimately had a managed bankruptcy of the automakers so the romney op-ed titled "let detroit go bankrupt," that was a "new york times" headline. romney wanted a managed bankruptcy, but -- but, john, you say he has actually said these words. >> the obama campaign sent me a video over night of him saying it in 2011, well after the bailout happened. he actually spoke the words let detroit go bankrupt, actually quoting the headline from that. so they are trying to say the words came out of his mouth, albeit not before the bailout or not when he's advocating for it. >> the difference here is mitt romney did not want a direct injection of taxpayer funds into the companies as they were, right? >> that's exactly correct. >> in the end you didn't get a direct injection of taxpayer funds into the company, right, because the white house and the car czar was remaking these things through the bankruptcy. >> there was a bailout and managed bankrup
